ARTS bosses have handed Colchester & Ipswich Museum service £250,000 to help create an online historical museum.

Staff and volunteers will create online content using Colchester’s archaeology collections for a new Wiki Museum using the Arts Council funding.

Colleagues in Ipswich will also focus on its world culture collections, while a new website will be created.

Tim Young, Colchester councillor responsible for culture, said: “This is very exciting news for the joint museum service and I am pleased that the excellence of the proposed project has been recognised by Arts Council England.”
